For people who manage networks and IT infrastructure for a living, staying current on the latest trends and technologies is a never-ending challenge. It can be hard to stay up to date while working full-time to keep a network or myriad IT resources running. How do you find the time, let alone the money, for training? Fortunately, many websites offer classes that IT pros can easily fit into their busy schedules and won't break the bank.

Free online IT training is available for a broad range of technology specialties, but our list is focused on sites that provide classes for IT professionals who work in networking or infrastructure management. These sites don't just offer free introductory courses or "for dummies" overviews. These are detailed, in-depth classes on coding, cloud, DevOps, and security that other infrastructure pros say they have found helpful for their day-to-day work.

Some of these IT training sites host actual university courses at the undergraduate or graduate level, and some of them offer optional certificates, usually for a fee. Others are far less formal. All of them offer real-world learning that can help you stay up-to-date and advance your IT career.
